Here is a useful question to help you to examine your conscience…
Have I neglected my Easter duty of receiving Holy Communion or
failed to confess my sins within a year?
A Prayer: If I were to say I have not sinned, I would be deceiving no one but myself.
Help me with your grace to examine myself in Your Presence.

Father of goodness and love; hear our prayers for the sick members of our community and for all who are in need. Amid mental and physical suffering may they find consolation in your healing presence. Show your mercy as you close wounds, cure illness, make broken bodies whole and free downcast spirits. May these special people find lasting health and deliverance, and so join us in thanking you for all your gifts. We ask this through the
Lord Jesus who healed those who believed.

The Bishop relies upon you to help him serve our Maronite parishes, open new missions, train our future Maronite priests, and support our retired priests. Do not confuse this appeal with the blue monthly Diocesan Assessment envelope in your yearly packet. Our parish sends a monthly payment to the Eparchy,
but this Bishop’s Appeal is a separate obligation. Every
family is asked to participate in the Appeal at a level which
is meaningful for them, and to be as generous as possible.
Please give what God has put in your heart to give.
Thank you for your generosity and may God bless you!
